It was a true Christmas play when 'Good Deeds," Knowledge ' ' Discretion, and all the other good char- acters of Christmas were portrayed by students. The play was a tremendous success even without scenery and represented the ideas and troubles of every man in the world. On this same evening of Thursday December 15 a Christ- mas buffet supper for students and parents was held in Sears Hall and later the Academy Chorus renewed or you might say continued the tradition of performing Fred Warings The Song of Christmas The Cantata is the story of the nativity which has been told over and over again in various Christmas songs carols and biblical verses Lewis Hyman was the narrator for the cantata and the solo ists were Betsy DeForest Adele Droste Georgian Coakley Mar tin Newman and Edward Manuel The evening was a wonderful event-a delicious supper with our parents in attendance roarmg fires in the Sears Hall fire places the handsome Christmas tree m the Art Gallery covered with our own decorations and the beautiful Chrrstmas play and music We couldnt have asked for a more wonderful beginnmg to another long awaited vacation A month didnt seem to go by when you werent hearing about the Keynote Club Each year more students seemed to be lured by music and what was a better was to become acquainted with it than by Joining a music club?

A MASCOT FOR THE MARY LOU Mzke Ioe and Ben had lived on the river for as long as they could remember They were born rxver rats and all of their hves they had drifted from lob to lob They were usually together and always around the rxver All three of them had served 1a1l terms for petty larceny and everyone believed them to be crlmmals through and through although they hadnt stolen anything for quite some time The three of them now held a job together and they believed themselves to be commg up m the world at last They ran a coal barge named the Mary Lou up and down the rxver from Greendale to Brown rxdge Indiana The run was a lonely one with no towns m between and rt gave the three of them plenty of tame for thought lt was late autumn and at the tame they were all short of cash On separate occasrons each had thought of ways of makmg a little extra money to last them until pay day but each had thought the others means too hard Finally they agreed on a plan They had all meant to stay wxthm the law but this seemed much easier and faster Every time the barge left Greendale there was one house they passed that all had noticed In back of the house was a large kennel m which a German Shepherd lived He was a beautiful dog and xt was agreed that he would sell for a great deal of money in Brownndge All was arranged among the men and the mght of the deed drew near The lob was an easy one as the dog was sleepmg peacefully when they approached Ben took out his handkerchief and when he had stealthily crept close he tied the dogs muzzle so that he would not grve an alarm The three of them together held hxm tightly as he tned to free himself and carried hmm aboard the Mary Lou The next mormng when Ben and Ioe awoke Mike was steermg the vessel through the quiet waters The dog was lymg on the deck surveymg the cabin wxth his calm brown eyes Mike had untred hxm and fed htm some cereal which seemed to appease his appetite for the moment When they had entered the kennel the mght before they had all noticed the name Baron on the door of the dog house Thxs name seemed to fit exactly the proud expression and carnage of the beautiful head The run of the barge was a long one and as the days passed the men grew more and more attached dinner which he fed to Baron when he thought the others werent looking Ioe stayed awake untll the other two men were asleep and then quxetly called Baron up onto the foot of his bed where the dog could sleep comfortably Ben kept hrm by hrs side most of the day and gave him all of the lxttle attentions a dog loves Each tried not to let the others see that he was weakenrng but by the txme of the barges arrival ln Brown ndge all knew that they could not part with Baron He had become the mascot of the Mary Lou but more than that Baron was gwrng each man trust and love and the extra companionship that each needed to keep from feeling lonely Baron also seemed to thrive on these attentions and frxendshxps It appeared that although he had been a champlon dog at home he had never had the love that a dog needs from the human bemg around hlm As soon as they men had unloaded their cargo and taken on a new load they headed the Mary Lou toward Greendale again On the return tnp rt must be declded what they would do with Baron The lxttle barge seemed to make the tnp in exceptionally fast tlme but by the time the Mary Lou pulled mto port the question had been answerd Each man had admitted that he had saved up a small sum of money for emergencies and xt was decxded to pool the resources and buy Baron if at all possible The next mormng the three men took Baron to hrs former home The couple who owned hmm had been frantic and had searched all over for htm It was rmmedlately apparent to the bargemen that they could not leave Baron here as they watched his owners coo and fuss over hxm They had brought thexr savings with them and they made an offer of all they had The man and his wife went mto consultatxon and fmally decided that the money the men had saved would be enough to buy the dog Money was always agreeable to them and they could also see how happy Baron was with the bargemen Three happy men and one happy dog returned to the coal barge that day The Mary Lou then had a permanent mascot Kathy Davxs 52 MY DOG When I come home from school at mght The one who greets me with delight Is my best and constant loy Though but a dog hes like a boy We like to play and romp and run To see him pump rs so much fun' He eats a lot of food tis true But when you play hard you do too And he is playful as can be My dog xs such a joy to me Lee Ward 53 .. ,, I I ' - to Baron.
